My advice is loosen your purse strings and buy the best you can afford. My experience is that in the long run itís been the cheapest marketing I have spent. People look at a business card and make an overall opinion of you. Why do you dress professional? Well, let your business card express that, too. Pass out cards freely. Even if it is not business oriented. For example, if I need to give someone my #, I just pull out a card. Many, times you will find that youíre connected business-wise or a relative/friend was just recently looking for someone. Bingo! One simple card just paid for itself.

My daughter once worked for Office Depot in the printing dept. Here is a just a little of her advice:

1. Choose good quality paper. Linen with raised lettering is a favorite choice of professionals. Not only does it look good but it also feels good. This pleases our sense of touch.

2. Donít go crazy on the fonts. One simple font is best. Focus more on font size, italics, and a color of font that is soothing to the eyes. Black is best, avoid reds, yellows, etc.

3. Keep your card simple, no clutter. Not so much information that you donít allow enough white space. Not too many phone numbers. Itís frustrating to a person trying to decipher through home, office, cell, fax, 2nd contact numbers, etc.

4. Also, donít print things on the back. Sorry Joan, I donít mean to disrespectful, but rarely does someone use the calendars. People want to write notes on the back. Reminders of where they met you, your fees, etc.

For a small fee Office Depot, others too, will have an example printed for you. This can be useful if you have any doubts in your choices.

Due to my daughters help I have actually had compliments from Title companies. What does mine look like? Nothing special, but in less that than two seconds you know the name of my business and my name.

I suggest you not use home made business cards if you are a serious notary/loan signer. It doesn't look professional. A wonderful website to learn about business cards is www.greatfxbusinesscards.com.

A great place to purchase your business card is www.vistaprint.com; just don't use their "free" business card offer.
If you go to www.gogetnotary.com and scroll down the homepage there is a sample of good business cards by notaries and this could set you on the right direction.

My business card is laminated, foiled, and has a calendar on the back.

I know a great local company (ca) who will ship and work with you via email.... Go to my website the CONTACT US page and give me your information and I'll have them give you a ring... This is a whole other way to go from the Staples card, but well worth the extra green.

Make your own. You can buy the blank cards at Staples, Office Depot, etc. and create them right from your desktop.
